Day 3: September 17th

Day 3/23

My pants are fitting more loosely than they did a week ago, which is both annoying (because they won’t stay up) and exciting! I’m not sure how often I’ll weigh myself, but I will share my overall weight change by the end of this little experiment, if there is any.

Also, I felt like I was bursting with energy all day… even more energy than I had when I drank loads of caffeine, but without the jitters!

The bad news: I started getting sharp pains in my left knee when walking. It’s the same leg as my hip injury from April-July, and my physical therapist said to watch out for the pain referring to the knees… I’m really, really hoping it’s just a fluke and not a new chronic injury. And I was planning on running tonight, too. 😦

Keeping my fingers crossed that it’ll be all better tomorrow so I can squat!
